Assalamualaikum and hi everyone! Meet me, Dr Farha, the latest addition to Klinik Pergigian Mawarni. I am officially a family member of KPM starting 1st June 2021 😊.
I graduated from with DDS from Universiti Sains Malaysia in 2010 under MINDEF scholarship program. After graduating, I immediately joined the Malaysian Armed Forces (MAF) with the rank Capt (Dr). That was how I met Dr Mawarni. I served with MAF for 10 years and it was a great time for me.
I gained a lot of experience while being a military dentist which was unique. We spent our time at the clinic treating patients who were soldiers, ex-servicemen, family members and civilians working with MINDEF. But we also had to perform other military duties as well.
Some of the memorable experience was when I was deployed to Thailand for COBRA GOLD Exercise in 2014. I was just married but had to leave my husband to perform my duty. Nonetheless, it was a great eye opener for me to be able to give service to the local people of Thailand.
Also in the same year, I was deployed to Lebanon as UN peacekeeper which was a dream come true for me. I was responsible to take care of the oral health of MALBATT 850-2 troop. Me and my team had to give dental services to the Lebanese as well as instructed by our commander at that time.
Being a military officer taught me to be resourceful and resilient and gentle at the same time. I grew up professionally being surrounded with great leaders who always supported me when I was unsure of myself and I thank them for that.
I hope I will be able to give my best service within my capabilities as a dental surgeon here in Klinik Pergigian Mawarni. To my dear future patients, I can not wait to see you soon!
